Shopping apps = huge savings, convience

Posted on August 8, 2012


Here’s the main ingredients to save more $$ than the smartphone or tablet you own, cost.  Use shopping apps.

I just came across the latest AC Nielsen survey. It shows that 47% of smartphone owners use shopping apps, so a lot of you already know about saving when you’re on the internet, in the store or shopping. If you prefer online shopping and the huge savings available there try eBay mobile and Amazon mobile.  Getting your medicines, check out Walgreens for savings as you decide what to buy and where. For that  big box experience, there is Target. All the apps except Out of Milk are currently on iPhones, iPads and Android mobile devices.

Anyway you do it price and location information are available and it appears smartphone owners have figured that out. Shopping will never be the same.

The top ten shopper apps used by smartphone owners are:

  1. eBay Mobile 
  2. Amazon Mobile – iPhone and iPad, Android
  3. Groupon 
  4. Shopkick 
  5. LivingSocial 
  6. Walgreens
  7. Target 
  8. RedLaser 
  9. Out of Milk – Android
  10. SavingStar Grocery Coupons – iPhone and iPad, Android
